Travel Quote of the Week: “I get to travel with me. I need somebody to bring me back to who I am. It’s hard to be alone.” – Leonardo DiCaprio.

I seldom travel with friends. Why? I like the flexibility of having my own time exploring new places and doing things I like. I can change plans at the last minute without consideration of what others feel or think about what I want to do. Also, when I travel alone, my journey turns into a self-discovery one where I get to know more about myself and learn to deal with challenges on my own. In short, I only have myself to deal with…. NO drama, NO conflicts and NO complications!
However, travelling alone has its own disadvantages too. It can get lonely and boring. Some activities are more fun to do with close friends than doing it alone. These include exploring the local nightlife, drinking in pubs, doing extreme adventure and outdoor activities and food tripping. Moreover, you get to have loads of good pictures of yourself (you have your friends to take your photo!).
On the other hand, you can always meet and mingle with new friends if you prefer to travel alone.
So whether you travel alone or with friends, make sure to enjoy every moment of your holiday trip because at the end of the day, what matters most is how to make the most of your travels to create beautiful and unforgettable memories to bring back home.
How about you? What do you prefer — to travel alone or with friends?
